Having enjoyed the first lockdown embroidery club, the Christmas one was not to be missed. I have loved all the projects! The advent calendar took ages but will last a lifetime, and it's just so lovely!! (Can't believe i made something so lush!) The club is delivered by weekly videos with tutorial worksheets and templates provided. There is an optional materials package - some people may prefer to raid their own stash - a materials list is provided early on. Poppy is just great - so enthusiastic, and the online facebook community that goes with the club (not mandatory) really adds to the experience - lots of sharing of ideas, makes and general merriment! Loved it! Thank you Poppy and team :-)
At a time when I thought life as we knew it was over for a very long time Poppy’s lockdown Embroidery Club Came along and injected some serious sanity, fuzzy warmth and friendship into very tough times. I’ve long admired Poppy’s products and designs and had even been down to the Cornwall studios and made a tea cosy in 2019 and wanted to go again so this was the brilliant alternative. Each project was a joy to create, the instructions and videos and help Poppy gave each week was excellent. I’d purchased the materials pack and the quality of the fabrics was gorgeous. The Facebook group shot 500 brand new Sewing friends straight into my life and we all thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie, helping each other out and often stealing ideas we loved that another posted. If I have to sum it up it was the thing that made Lockdown(1) bearable and I’ll never forget it and the joy it has brought to me and will bring to me every time I thread my machine for some Free Motion Embroidery. Thank you Poppy.
Poppy managed to bring together kindred spirits from all around the world during a time when we were in isolation. I have basic sewing skills, but was able to make the projects each week. The online community was terrific with suggestions, shared efforts, and good humor. I can't wait to connect with Poppy and everyone to make the Christmas Club projects!
Embroidery Club was a lifesaver during lockdown. A tiny grain of normality linking us together in what turned out to be the most exciting and totally absorbing 6 weeks of heaven during the earliest and most scariest weeks of lockdown. Thank you Poppy for the joy you gave us. Can't wait for Christmas Club. X
